On the 66th Anniversary of the Armistice Signing,

More Than 80 Organizations Call for an End to the Korean War


Posted on July 25, 2019


July 27, 2019 



Dear President Trump: 


We are writing to you on behalf of organizations around the world, many that have long worked for peace on the Korean Peninsula. 


On the 66th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice Agreement that temporarily halted the Korean War, we urge you to finally negotiate a peaceful settlement to the longest standing U.S. conflict. 


This unresolved war has resulted in the extreme militarization of the Korean Peninsula and taken a significant toll on the lives of millions of people, keeping families torn apart and survivors of the war unable to reconcile the painful past. 


Now that high level trust has been established between you and Chairman Kim, it’s time to declare an end to the Korean War and replace the Armistice with a peace agreement. We urge you to take this crucial step in order to move towards achieving a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula. 


Furthermore, at the first summit between the two Koreas, President Moon and Chairman Kim committed to negotiating a peace agreement, ​declaring​, “​there will be no more war and a new era of peace has begun on the Korean peninsula​.” In the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, they committed to “actively promote the holding of trilateral meetings involving the two sides and the United States, or quadrilateral meetings involving the two sides, the United States and China with a view to replacing the Armistice Agreement with a peace agreement and establishing a permanent and solid peace regime.” 


The United States must respect the wishes of the Korean people and their governments by negotiating a peace agreement, which would take the threat of war off the table and improve the security of Koreans, Americans and the global community. 


To ensure the success of the peace process, we urge you to establish a process that includes women’s equal participation. Research shows that when women participate in peace processes, the resulting agreements are more successful and durable. Women’s meaningful involvement in peace processes is a commitment of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 of 2000 and the U.S.’s Women, Peace and Security Act of 2017. 


It’s time to move forward and finally bring closure to seven decades of war. A brighter future for Koreans, Americans and the world depends on it. 


Respectfully yours,
